An efficient and novel nitrating reagent has been developed for ipso-nitration of arylboronic
acids. By using inexpensive and commercially available Cu(NO3)2/CF3COOH as nitrating reagent,
various nitroarenes are produced in moderate to excellent yields (51-96%). Advantages of this procedure
are the operational simplicity and no need of extra catalyst.
Keywords: Arylboronic acids, Cu(NO3)2/CF3COOH as nitrating reagent, ipso-Nitration, nitroarenes, catalyst-free.
